In honor of the 2014 FIFA World Cup taking place in Brazil, we're taking a tour of the nation's music. The national samba, maxixe and lambada traditions influence pieces by Heitor Villa-Lobos, Camargo Guarnieri and more.
Summer is a time for lighthearted, simple music that coexists perfectly with your family barbecues, time at the beach or pool, and relaxing afternoons on the patio. Listen to this playlist all summer long for music that manages to strike a balance between serene and upbeat, with a couple of dramatic pieces thrown in to remind us that summer rainstorms do happen!
